NASA's Flying Fish: Riding Aboard the Super Guppy Aircraft
[i]On Saturday (June 30), visitors to The Museum of Flight in Seattle will get an up-close look at a very unusual NASA aircraft. In fact, it's not uncommon for air traffic controllers and even fellow pilots who spot the "Super Guppy" to ask a simple but telling question: "What are you?"
I got to find out first-hand. On Thursday, I was invited by NASA to not just tour but fly aboard the Super Guppy, a bulbous cargo plane, as it flew between air bases near Los Angeles and San Francisco. The 90-minute trip up the California coast is one I won't soon forget, and according to the Super Guppy's flight crew, it was a rarity — perhaps even a first — for a civilian reporter.[/i]
